    keyboard problems

    Advertisement



    i have the 8100 and im not sure if there is water damage or not because when i turn my phone on the scroll ball will work but nothing on the keyboard or side of the phone works. i can only answer calls via blackberry headset, when the phone goes blank like it normally should it wont turn back on obviously because none of the button works. is this h2o damage or defective phone?

    P.S. i did get a few drops of water on when i got out of the pool to answer a text

    that could be an answer, one way to see if it was serious is take the back off there is a liquid indicator by the battery of the device

    Well there's is a indicator on the battery and all batteries have a red line. Is the red line really thick. Blood red. And there is an indicator on the back of the phone by the media card. Is that red. Sometimes if ebough water gets into the device it can short out the keys etc. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Try a blow dryer to it. That may work. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Did you do a battery pull after the reset? if so make sure you still have the program installed that the convenience key is linked to
